Altamont Enterprise May 16, 1919


— The Altamont bakery is planning extensive improvements to its equipment by the addition of another large oven which will have a baking capacity one half larger than the present output. Other improvements are contemplated, but the oven will be the first to receive the attention of the management of the bakery. The oven will be installed within a few weeks.

— J. L. Harrington had installed a new electrical machine for shaking malted milk drinks, and other drinks which require stirring. If you want to see it in operation call on John and ask him for a glass of malted milk and find out how quickly it can be mixed.


The communities of East Berne and Berne had the special privilege of Sunday afternoon and evening of listening to the story of Private Luther C. Warner’s fighting days in France. He gave his story in a very interesting style and held the attention of the large audiences.


— Of the five sons of Mr. and Mrs. Edward Pier of this village who were in the fighting in France, four have returned to the United States. J. Edward Pier, Jr. of Company C, 148th Infantry, who was seriously wounded in the leg by a machine gun bullet during an engagement in October, and who was invalided home from France the early part of March, is now in the hospital at Colonia, N. J., where a few weeks ago he underwent his eighth operation. He is doing as well as can be expected, but it will probably be a long time before he will be discharged from the hospital. The other four sons came through without being wounded. One is still in France.


A party was tendered Francis Weidman Tuesday afternoon to celebrate his birthday. Games and music were part of the amusements, followed by the serving of ice cream, cake and other good things which the little folks enjoyed very much. Some pretty girls were received by the little host.


A meeting of the Delmar Parent-Teachers’ association was held at the school building Thursday evening. Dr. Joseph S. Lawrence, of the State Department of Health, gave a talk on “What Should We Tell the Boy and Girl About Sex?”


The Rev. and Mrs. Leon B. Randall are at home in the M. E. parsonage and will be glad to welcome all members of their congregation when they choose to make friendly calls. Let us make the people feel at home by remembering to call on them occasionally.
